    Default Sometimes it just don’t pay off

    To live in a small town.

    I am building a swing mount for my iPhone for the boat. I use stuff I have accumulated when I can, but sometimes I have to stuff.

    Well, I needed a metric screw, so I went to the local hardware store. I was greeted wit the “can I help you” . I responded with “I need a M5 20 millimeter”. He responded with “sorry we don’t sell guns here”.

    I knew I was out of luck.

    The bar is a 5 inch 2020 T rail. I made the end pieces from abs scrap piece.
    I drill tapped the center of both ends of the t rail so to screw on the end cap and t rail swivel end.

    I am still in need of some 5M 20mm.

    I also dislike having to educate people at a store that is supposed to know their stuff. I bet it was tough not to laugh at them.

    I moved from a big city to outside a small town a few years back and couldn't get used to them rolling up the sidewalks on Saturdays, and for convenience I have a small city about 40 mi away.

    Well, like everything in the world, the metric came about so to "tic off" Americans. Looks like it is working.

    Why the disdain for hex heads, or are you talking about Allen heads (cap bolts/screws)?

    Cane pole, If you have a "Fastenal' store anywhere near you, they will have what you need.
